Well Egypt isn't on this list but who thought it would be, "not I, said the Eskimo.
But one would have thought that 'Guzunder might be on it, but No.

They need to update the cheapest countries to live. Egypt number 43? Going off the new inflated prices I think that it would be last on the list now.

I was interested to see that Turkey was rated cheaper than Egypt. I've always thought the reverse on my visits, and certainly rents and utilities are cheaper from what friends tell me. Not sure I believe this :?:

Tonight I pack my bags bound for a couple of hedonistic days over in el Gouna, just 20 minutes from the airport.
Back to Gatwick and only 50 minutes to Clerkenwell, centre of my, known Universe.
My gaff here is left in the hands of a couple of 'wanna-be pyromaniacs, 'am I bovvered ? Yes I am.....
It's 23.30 hrs and I'm still sorting out sh*te ready to return to my touch-stone of reality, my real home.

So all you ex-pats left here, enjoy today for tomorrow you could be in another revolution,.......
No ATM, No mobiles, No internet, No visa's, and do I really give a flying 'duck ?
No, I do not...Enjoy today for it could be your last,
So it's 'tata from me and my next missive could be from hedonistic egypt or 'cool Clerkenwell,
'who knows ? 'this is, after all Egypt, 'nothing is written!...'unless You write it'....... 8)
Ps: It's a right b*stard when you can't find your socks!

Well since the wind has dropped it seems to be the 'way to go when flying out of Hurgharda.

Spent a day at Portmeiron, very interesting, kids loved it, but most importantly, you were treated like a human being and not a number. ;)

It also has a lovely beach if you walk down the hill, that's where the big white balloon used to appear and bounce along chasing No6 ;)

The day we were there it was blowing a 200mph gale across the sands. Unfortunately someone found the kids half a mile away and brought them back. :lol:

Funnily enough I always seem to get good weather if I visit that area, although once on the nearby beach at Black Rock Sands near Port mad dog, we were hit by a similar howling gale that made us all dive back into the car and the barbecue was glowing white hot like a Blacksmiths hearth as the wind blasted through it. :lol: :lol:

I'm all in favour of weighing people first who wish to fly.
If a person cannot 'slip by the drinks trolley whilst in the gangway then they should be made to buy 2 or even 3 seats, fat b*st*rds the lot
and many should be made to wear face masks 'coughs & sneezes spread diseases especially on a plane... 8)

Ps: And many shouldn't even be allowed out of the UK. except to Lloret de Mar or Torremolinos.
I watched two fat b*st*rds trying to pass each other in the gangway, impossible and not even funny.
